In brief: B6 deficiency

The deficiency is relatively rare.
Older age, alcoholism, coexisting other vitamin b deficiencies, dialysis, and certain drugs can all increase the risk of deficiency.

In brief: B6 deficiency common

Due to caffeine intake and rich foods we deplete b6 very quick people who has gas, bloating, smelly bowel movements need higher b6 than others.
